I think you may need to repair your installation of windows XP or if that doesnt work, just reinstall it fresh.

How can I start Win XP in safe mode with UKASH virus scam (don't ask - just keep teenage nephews away from PC). Can get into boot up and select 'Safe Mode' but it gets bypassed.

If you can get to the Internet then you can use a WEB based virus removal.

If you cannot boot up and you do not have a virus scan disk then you need a Recovery CD that came with your laptop to restore your laptop back to the Out of the Box condition.

Try these -
WEB-based Virus Scan
Trend Micro HouseCall Symantec - Norton Security Scan

Hi, i cannot get inside windos xp. i'd like to reinstall or reboot my laptop. what am i goin to do? I dont have cd rom. pls. help thanks.

Without the XP CD, you're kind of stuck. If you can get one from a friend, it'll work fine. Once you get a disk, you can boot from the disk by setting your CD-ROM drive as the boot drive or run setup on the disk to start the reformat/reinstall process.

XP wont boot and i cant boot from the restore disk. I get error code 1000-0146 when i run the DST Short test

That error code sounds like the Hard Drive is failing or has failed. Can you boot into Safe Mode? Hit F8 as you power up and choose Safe Mode with Command Prompt. If you can, enter chkdsk /r at a command prompt (the black window you'll see). You say you can't boot from the restore disk - why not? Are you booting to the green Dell Windows XP disc that shipped with the computer? Check the boot order in Setup (the BIOS) and make sure it looks to the CD drive first before trying to boot to the hard drive. SpinRite is a good utility for fixing these things, but not free, and involves booting to CD.
Hope this helps!

I have a SONY Viao VGN-NR220E laptop with Vista home premium.I was trying to restore the laptop to the factory condition, but after i selected the option to restore to factory defaults, nothing happened...

Some of the solutions that you can try are
1 - Boot in Safe Mode....switch on the notebook, press F8 after machine starts.....if you get the options, chose Safe Mode and then once u get into the Desktop panel switch off and switch on let it boot in normal mode.....
2 Else you have to have the option of loading the defaults from the rescue disk in the above process, insert the Resuce disk that you created and start.
3 The final option is to Reformat the Disk and install the WIN XP / Vista OS...the best is install do that insert the WinXP disk and switch on the machine again....follow on screen instructions
Do a partition of your disk, Format and install XP in C: and leave D: or E: to save your critical Data files....

I have no keyboard input on my Acer 5672 when Windows XP boots in normal mode. Keyboard words fine in safe mode.

Suggest you, in Safe Mode, attempt to recover your computer's Operating System from the disks provided with your computer. Place the disk into the drive and reboot. The computer SHOULD boot from the DVD and restore your Operating System.

When powering up it will go to the windows xp screen

HI. This will happen if the core system file bank has been compromised by a virus or malicious software. I suspect the virus has wiped out all restore points and has completely disabled all safe mode access points as well..Unfortunately, you will lose all your saved information that you have stored on the partitioned hard drive due to this attack. The only way to fully restore this system to its factory settings would be to locate a recovery disk that should have been shipped along with this unit. Use this disk to restore the core system files and the main operating system as well. If you don't have the recovery disk that was sent with your unit, a Windows XP disk will preform the same action and, will restore this unit to factory specs as well, minus the software pack. There is a possible way to restore this system and keep the hard drive as is but, this can only be attempted by using the original recovery disk that was sent with the unit and, its not always successful. I recommend totally re formatting the drive to clear it of all data. this will assure that the virus and all of its contents are removed.

Please rate and god bless.

Hp dv1000 media card


Remove the media card while booting.

If there is no media in the card reader, press F8 after the laptop beeps during boot and this should give you a Safe Mode boot screen, choose Safe Mode and then your default OS listed. After you get your desktop, restart the laptop.

If when you press F8 you get a boot from what screen, choose your hard drive and then immediately press F8 again to get the Safe Mode boot screen.

You need to either remove the flash media or use Safe Mode and then restart to reset the Boot Ini information script.

Let me know if this works for you or not, as we may need to take another measure.
